 AS the annual regional INSOL conference wraps up in San Francisco, Australians have emerged as prominent players in the organisation's leadership with PPB Advisory's Mark Robinson taking on the presidency after several years as vice president. 

A statement issued by PPB Advisory said Robinson's role would include "promoting a stronger, global turnaround culture" and expanding INSOL's reach into jurisdictions like South-East Asia.

"In the near term, Mark will be embarking on an active program to listen to the needs of market participants both here and abroad to shape his program to deliver the above priorities and broadening its membership base to include other turnaround market participants such as debt/hedge/private equity funds and financiers," the statement said.

Other Aussies ascending the INSOL ranks include the Queensland University of Technology's Ros Mason, who as Professor of Insolvency & Restructuring Law and a member of the Faculty of Law’s Commercial and Property Law Research Centre now heads up INSOL's academic group.

Henry Davis York chairman and insolvency specialist Scott Atkins, also takes a seat on the main INSOL board.

The appointments are an endorsement for the Australian Reconstruction, Insolvency & Turnaround Association (ARITA), which counts Robinson as a past president and Atkins as a current director.
